#2 * 10^1 J#


The general idea is that you need to find the magnitude of the pushing force you're exerting on the block, and then go ahead and multiply that by the distance you push (which is the definition of work).

I've answered a question that's exactly the same as this one (with different numbers) here, and I'd recommend you take a look at that for more info.

Hope that helped :)
